Hi. I'm new to this forum and need diet/nutrition help. I am the caregiver for my sister who is a blind, gluten intolerant, insulin dependent type-2 diabetic who has just been diagnosed with stage 5 kidney disease. She is not on dialysis because her doctor would like to see if her kidney function can improve in the next few weeks. We have asked to see a nutritionist but have been told that referral could take a while.

In the meantime, I need help with her diet. Her doctor has advised no carbohydrates, no dairy, and nothing that ends in an "o" (potato, tomato, avocado). She is allowed 5 to 7 oz. of protien daily.

Given all this, I need help in planning her diet. I really have no idea what to cook. Does anyone have any suggestions or recipes that could help. Thanks.
